Sherwood Hall is an Xseed school.
Having said that, I’m reviewing their 1st standard material in English and it’s ridiculous. Keep in mind that I’m American, and am thus a native speaker having been born and raised there.
To start, the XSeed English material is far too text-heavy for 1st standard kids coming to terms with the language. The instructions are also at times unclear for even a native speaker, let alone a 5-year-old. For example, an activity asks the student to “write 2 doing words that have the same vowel sound as sun.” Yeah. I ultimately understood the question but I can’t fathom a 5-year-old learning this. Instructions shouldn’t be more complicated than the question itself.
It’s also needlessly pretentious. It notates which parts of the book are “HOTS focus” which is, “Higher Order Thinking Skills” [which] are necessary in any profession.” Seriously? They’re first standard students, for crying out loud!
Anyway, Sherwood’s a good school and the students I tutor there are as adept in English as the ones I teach going to the other nearby schools (Chinmaya, Lady Andal, etc). But XSEED is pretty awful.
